Welcome, Summer!

Posted on: May 30, 2017

What event marks the beginning of summer for you? As children, often it was the last day of school. As adults, wearing shorts outside for the first time, or perhaps a BBQ over Memorial Day weekend could mark the beginning of summer.

We each tend to have our own ways of deciding when summer has arrived. Summertime in Philadelphia can mean many different things such as trips to the Jersey shore, baseball games, or simply enjoying the sunshine.

It also can mean a summer concert at PPh, a 4th of July Parade down Rising Sun Avenue, or enjoying activities with the children of the PPh inter-generational camp.

Summer is always a busy time at PPh, and this year will not be any different. Our summer concert series begins on Thursday, June 8 with the return of the much-loved Ferko String Band. Tell your friends and family and join us for an evening of excellent entertainment!

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
